ACIM – CLARIFICATION OF TERMS 5. Jesus-Christ

1. There is no need for help to enter Heaven for you have never left. But there is need for help beyond yourself as you are circumscribed by false beliefs of your Identity, Which God alone established in reality. Helpers are given you in many forms, although upon the altar they are one. Beyond eachContinue reading “ACIM – CLARIFICATION OF TERMS 5. Jesus-Christ”

ACIM CLARIFICATION OF TERMS II. The Ego-The Miracle

1. Illusions will not last. Their death is sure, and this alone is certain in their world. It is the ego’s world because of this. What is the ego? But a dream of what you really are. A thought you are apart from your Creator and a wish to be what He created not. ItContinue reading “ACIM CLARIFICATION OF TERMS II. The Ego-The Miracle”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 8. How Can Perception of Order of Difficulties Be Avoided?

1. The belief in order of difficulties is the basis for the world’s perception. It rests on differences; on uneven background and shifting foreground, on unequal heights and diverse sizes, on varying degrees of darkness and light, and thousands of contrasts in which each thing seen competes with every other in order to be recognized.Continue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 8. How Can Perception of Order of Difficulties Be Avoided?”

ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VIII Choose Once Again

1. Temptation has one lesson it would teach, in all its forms, wherever it occurs. It would persuade the holy Son of God he is a body, born in what must die, unable to escape its frailty, and bound by what it orders him to feel. It sets the limits on what he can do;Continue reading “ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VIII Choose Once Again”

ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VII. The Savior’s Vision 9-15

9. The veil across the face of Christ, the fear of God and of salvation, and the love of guilt and death, they all are different names for just one error; that there is a space between you and your brother, kept apart by an illusion of yourself that holds him off from you, andContinue reading “ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VII. The Savior’s Vision 9-15”

ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VII. The Savior’s Vision

1. Learning is change. Salvation does not seek to use a means as yet too alien to your thinking to be helpful, not to make the kinds of change you could not recognize. Concepts are needed while perception lasts, and changing concepts is salvation’s task. For it must deal in contrasts, not in truth, whichContinue reading “ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VII. The Savior’s Vision”

ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VI. Recognizing the Spirit

1. You see the flesh or recognize the spirit. There is no compromise between the two. If one is real the other must be false, for what is real denies its opposite. There is no choice in vision but this one. What you decide in this determines all you see and think is real andContinue reading “ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION VI. Recognizing the Spirit”

ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION V Self-Concept versus Self

1. The learning of the world is built upon a concept of the self adjusted to the world’s reality. It fits it well. For this an image is that suits a world of shadows and illusions. Here it walks at home where what it sees is one with it. The building of a concept ofContinue reading “ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION V Self-Concept versus Self”

ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION IV The Real Alternative

1. There is a tendency to think the world can offer consolation and escape from problems that its purpose is to keep. Why should this be? Because it is a place where choice among illusions seems to be the only choice. And you are in control of outcomes of your choosing. Thus you think, withinContinue reading “ACIM CHAPTER 31 THE FINAL VISION IV The Real Alternative”
